Such an awesome first day at Spruces~

Rowan actually slept in his own bed in the trailer! He was so excited when he woke up~
After breakfast we headed up to Brighton to hike to Lake Mary.  We were missing a few that had other commitments but we gained a few that joined us for the hike~





Yep, that's just about how Willow feels about hiking up mountains~


Of course Rowan and Gabe had the luxury of back rides~


Cute buddies taking a break~
Amber is just so awesome~
Strength~
We took lots of breaks along the way. Its pretty much straight up for a mile or so~
Adorable family~
Yep, I sure love this man and this kid~
 

Troopers! These kids are quite the hikers~
There was also lots of Pokémon catching along the way!

Glow sticks are always a hit!
 
Even though we had swarms of biting insane flies, 2 trips to Instacare ( 1 split lip and 1 foot), a kid/car collision (he was fine), a cooking burn, and tons of wildlife trying to get into tents and coolers we had an AMAZING weekend of fun and friendship.  We are so lucky to have such wonderful friends!



Life is great being an unschooler~
